Communicating and disseminating findings

An important part of the work of National Information Platforms for Nutrition (NIPN) is to produce evidence-based analysis to inform national policy makers and programme planners and to support their decisions.
Based on a review of the literature, on interviews with key informants, and on the analysis of a range of information products in the field of nutrition, this guidance note identifies the best practices to apply when producing any materials, in order to ensure that outputs are seen, understood by, and hopefully acted upon, by their intended audience.
